Following my three part series on the slaves of my 5th grand-father James Sims during Black History Month in February 2015 I made a commitment to write a post on a monthly basis until I’ve RELEASED all of the names of slaves owned by my ancestors.
While researching my 1752 immigrant ancestor Johann Jacob RUPP (1723-aft. 1792) I found the 1773 taxables list for Pipe Creek Hundred in Baltimore County, Maryland. On this list were eight heads of household with 19 Negroes listed. With this post I am releasing: Roger, Hary, Hannah, Nan, Punch, Ben, Jack, Cris, Fon, Abram, Luce, Hannah, Ledy, Jacob, Sam, York, Tom, Bob, and Cole.
The 1773 tax list for Pipe Creek Hundred in Baltimore County, Maryland, was found on the Maryland State Archives site, under Guide to Government Records, Information on C428 – (Tax List). © 2016, copyright Cathy Meder-Dempsey. All rights reserved.
